Ed was born Oct. 18, 1961, in Manchester, son of Margaret (Gally) Tluck of Manchester and the late Andrew Emil Tluck. Ed attended Verplanck Elementary, Bennet Junior High, and was a 1979 graduate of Manchester High School. He went on to earn his bachelor's degree in business management from the University of Connecticut with the Class of 1983. Ed's 26-year career as a mortgage loan officer had him working for several banks and mortgage companies and most recently with Webster Bank. He was well respected in his field and owned his own mortgage company for several years as well.
In addition to his wife and mother, he is survived by and was a loving father of three: twin boys, Alex C. Tluck and Connor E. Tluck, and daughter, Kayla M. Tluck, all of Hebron. He also leaves his sister, Linda Ott, and her husband, Richard, and their children, Dean and Eric Ott, all of Manchester. Ed also leaves two sisters-in-law, Patricia Daniel, and her husband, Dean, of Coventry and Judy Calvert, and her late wife, Leslie MacLeman, of Vernon. He also leaves a brother-in-law, George Cartwright of Florida. He is survived by several loving and loved nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews. "Uncca Ed" will truly be missed.
Ed had countless close friends and neighbors whom he treasured. He enjoyed time spent with friends, meetings with "The Wildcats," traveling, camping, skiing, biking, campfires (the bigger the better), and mostly recently became a devoted runner who completed a 5k just this past Aug. 5. Ed was an active and faithful member of Gilead Congregational Church, where he was affectionately known as the one and only "Chef Ed." He served on the Board of Deacons and was chairperson for a number of years. He was also instrumental in starting a Men's Fellowship and served as chairman and co-chairman for many years. Ed loved every minute coaching his children in basketball and baseball in their younger years.
